Hiko ends his professional playing career

The professional player Hiko, a well-known figure in the CS:GO and Valorant games, has just announced that he is putting an end to his career. After more than ten years spent in competitions, he decided to focus on content creation and officially became a streamer for 100 Thieves.

Spencer's career " Hiko "Martin started in 2011 on Counter Strike 1.6 but has really taken off on Counter Strike: Global Offensive the following year. For almost eight years, the player has worked with many important organisations such as Cloud 9, Team Liquid, OpTic Gaming and Rogue.

With his various teams, he won several major competitions and finally decided to leave the CS:GO competitive scene in 2020. He then turned to VALORANT and joined the 100 Thieves team alongside former PUBG players.

The team's beginnings were complicated and the structure quickly decided to rebuild the entire roster keeping only Hiko. After these changes, the new 100 Thieves had a good 2021 season. They placed well in several Challengers and even qualified for the Berlin Masters where they made a top 3-4. Unfortunately, the team did not manage to secure a place in the Valorant Champions after failing to reach the Grand Final of the Last Chance Qualifier North America.

However, since the start of the 2022 season, the 100 Thieves have struggled to perform. They finished 5th in their group in the Challengers 1 and did not not qualified for the playoffs, and by extension for the Masters. It was shortly after this failure that Hiko announced the end of his professional playing career.

The player will now concentrate on the content creation and should therefore probably be streamed more regularly on Twitch channel. In any case, we wish him well for the future.
